Another crazy dog story: my daughter and her boyfriend were driving along a busy road near dark the other night when a very small dog ran in front of them. They jammed on the brakes and just missed it. But the dog decided to just stay in the road. They stopped, got out of the car, and tried to get the dog to come to them. It wouldn't. Just then ... THUMP-THUMP. The dog gets run over by a car Now it's laying in the road motionless and my daughter is in tears.

They run over to check on it and the dog gets up and runs to the sidewalk. They eventually get the dog into the car and can see the tire marks on the dog. There's no collar or ID. They take it to the 24-hour animal hospital and have it checked and X-rayed and there is nothing at all wrong with it The vet also could see the tire marks. And they saw it get hit and heard the dreaded double thump.

So now they're trying to decide whether to keep it or not and meanwhile are compiling a list of possible names: Michelin, Speedbump, Snowtire, Retread, Pothole and my daughter's favorite - Ren (from Ren & Stimpy fame).

Amazing story Curt....wooo boy....so happy the little one escaped harm....a miracle if there ever was one!

Boy or girl?

lot of possible names that will all be good.....how about Hankook - the South Korean tire company. Han (like Han Solo) Kook (as in Kooky).

Anyway.....please give the little one a kiss and hug from all of us and thanks for being such good humans!

New addition. Office manager found this guy when she was walking her dog. Her idiot niece wanted the dog, and got him with the stipulation that if she could not keep him, do NOT take him to the shelter where she volunteers. She of course took him to the shelter when mom says no pretty much immediately. We picked him up Saturday, never even heard of this breed prior to that. Gets along great with the other rescue dog too.

Sorry, Dutch Shepherd, a brindle Malinois, pretty much. Very coordinated for a tiny little dog. Other dog only had to help him get on the bed the first time, now he jumps. I think he is likely going to be pretty big eventually, big paws. He looks better than he did already. Still really skinny, crazy hungry when the food comes out.
